Situation

Every year thousands of children are diagnosed as deaf; an enormous shock to parents with no experience of the impact of hearing loss. Bright, deaf children with poor communication are unable to use hearing aids/ implants independently to access speech or enjoy listening to sound. They cannot participate in classroom learning as they grow & fall quickly behind hearing peers. Without early intervention the children have reduced academic & social skills & families suffer enormous stress & anxiety

Solution

We provide outstanding daily education & welfare sessions to children aged up to 5, using specialist techniques to develop listening, language & social skills. We give practical advice & emotional support to parents to promote their skills and confidence to help their child and tackle challenges head on. By providing the best education & oral development start in life our deaf children leave us at age 5 with age appropriate speech & language, & a solid foundation for future academic success.
